Dine in Secrecy off the Charming Streets of Paris

L'oisea Blanc at the Peninsula Paris

The Peninsula Paris

You’re invited to the City of Lights’ own secret tables, private salons and even a hidden garden restaurant.

Paris evokes love, initiates indulgence, and illuminates the spirit of Renaissance. It does all of this while begging to be your next destination to savor the finest in fashion and food across the City of Lights. But what happens when crowds flock to the same famous addresses for Parisian fare? These culinary explorations are most definitely worth flying around the globe for, but the magic can wear and the humor tire during the city’s peak season.   Here we garnered the worthy names of four restaurants and brasseries that cater to foodies and conversationalists alike, where romance is cultivated at private tables adjacent to the Eiffel Tower and parties are hosted at distinguished venues behind closed doors. These spectacular Parisian locations include Michelin-rated meals and unsurpassed privacy from the bustling crowds high above the streets. These are the places where food and intimacy are joined tableside.

The Private Salons at Restaurant Guy Savoy
You can’t have a true Parisian experience without a Michelin star acting as the cherry on top of the culinary tour. And what better way to satiate your taste buds than reserving a table, or an entire private salon, at the three-Michelin-star-rated establishment, Restaurant Guy Savoy, located in the luxe façade inside an 18th-Century building where the Old World meets the new. Modern black walls offer a sense of mystery while wrapping guests in artistically-driven décor and vibrant place settings adorning ivory tablecloths.

With the masterful voice from Guy Savoy who has taken the gastronomical landscape and built upon it an empire, you will witness his perspective on full display at this highly-rated restaurant that is worth adding to your culinary bucket list.

Beyond the main dining area, there is a selection of salons available for private hire, which can be planned for a cozy gathering of eight guests and up to 28 for a larger celebratory bash. Behind the closed doors, guests can jubilate, sip and savor in complete privacy while the wait staff caters to each need, offering virtuous plates from Savoy himself, like the Concassé of oysters, seaweed and lemon granite, seasoned lobster and foie gras. For a sensory experience that will capture your sight and taste in one ornate swoop, Savoy promises to give you the exclusive dining experience that we crave while putting the food at the heart of the journey.

Le Jardin at Grand Coeur Restaurant
Grand Coeur restaurant and brasserie is the culinary hotspot for those who are coming off of an evening of dancing at the nearby studios in the fashion-forward district of Marais. Poised within an 18-Century building, the establishment lies along a paved courtyard where an outdoor dining patio lets guests gulp in the breezy spring air while looking out across the stone-lined streets reflective of an era that seems to have been frozen in time. GrandCouer represents our love affair with Paris, a city woven with history that compliments the modern taste buds. And Le Jardin is the secret garden-style restaurant that makes us feel like we discovered something all to ourselves. The restaurant is tucked beyond the main dining space to lead guests off the beaten track to find a more intimate setting.
